Construction and Deconstruction

The skinning of the skyscraper on 100 Van Ness continues apace.

The partially disassembled tower looms over the neighborhood like some warning totem of impending disaster ahead.

Meanwhile, a new set of luxury condos is being assembled near the corner of Ivy and Gough Streets in the Hayes Valley. Its shingled facade looks charmingly old-fashioned in the context of the cookie-cutter, modernist steel and glass lofts rising all around it.
